STRING TRIOS by BEETHOVEN
Played by KENNETH SKEAPING (Violin)
BERNARD SHORE (Viola)
EDWARD J. ROBINSON (Violoncello)
Op. 9, No. 2, First and Second Movements
BEETHOVEN'S String Trio in D (Op. 9, No. 2), of which the first two movements are to be played this evening, is less often performed than its companions in G and C Minor, both of which are undoubtedly finer works, but it contains some delightful pages, even so. As a whole, it is ' earlier ' in style and more Mozartian in character than either of its fellows, though many will find it none the less attractive on that account.
PROFESSOR TURNBULL, who is to give a series of six talks on the subject of India, is a Lecturer under the Oxford University Extension Lectures Committee. He was formerly Professor of English at Deccan College, Poona. In the course of his talks he will deal with the history of India, the religions and customs of its peoples, and in particular with the effects of British rule on the general welfare of the country as a whole. In his first talk he deals with the country and its inhabitants.
He points out that India is larger than all of Europe, excluding Russia, and contains 200 languages and dialects, with fifty different scripts. He draws comparisons between old India and modern India, and explans the differences between the three chief racial divisions : Aryan, Dravidian, and Mongolian.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
